Dick treasured his grandchildren Ashley, Katherine, Ryan, Scott, Lindsay, Connor, Drew, Ally, Jenny, Caden, Scout, and Ganon. It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that we share the passing of Joanne McLean following a courageous four year battle with cancer. Joanne was born in Weston, Ontario the eldest daughter of Harvey and Vera Currie, both of whom are predeceased. In 2003, Joanne began her own leadership and executive coaching practice, Soulzatwork, offering coaching services to both individuals and organizations. This work excited and fulfilled Joanne, and her success was a reflection of her exceptional skill and talent. She was soon invited to join the faculty at The Banff Centre for Leadership in Banff, Alberta to facilitate and coach in various leadership programs, a role she held for many years. Once diagnosed with cancer, Joanne recognized a need in Muskoka for a centre that would provide supports to cancer patients and their caregivers to help normalize their journey with the disease. Enliven Muskoka () was co-created in 2016 by Joanne, and through the support of a dedicated board of directors and volunteers, is focused on fulfilling that vision. Joanne’s love for her work saw her continuing to coach and to stay involved with Enliven up to a month before she passed. For those who wish, the family asks for donations to the Huntsville Hospital Emergency Department or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in lieu of flowers. A special thank you to Huntsville Hospital staff, (especially Dr. Megan Stephenson) who have been a tremendous source of care, strength, support and love for Ted and Joan.

Rick then followed his father and joined Bell Canada working in St. Agathe and Montreal, moving through installation and repair to central office work where he was promoted.

This is where the inconsistencies of the Costa Rican banking system start to show up. We have friends that have both deposited and wire transferred money far greater than the limits above, even without Residency. However, all have been contacted at a later time, sometimes months or years later, and required to declare the origin of the money and how it was earned. If you don’t comply, your account will be closed and you will be banned from having an account at that bank forever. With so few highly recommended banks available, this is not something that you want to have happen. The Optimist service club raises funds for projects to improve the lives of children.
